Indoor Air Quality
Property owners and managers continue to recognize the value in healthy and productive indoor working environments. Between work and home, people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors where the air is often more polluted. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency studies consistently rank indoor air pollution among the top five environmental threats to the public. Examples include radon, organic compounds, secondhand smoke and biological pollutants.
Indoor air threats are preventable and can decrease employee productivity if not fixed.
